We had some fun at “Honky-Tonk Night at the museum. Piano expert Jere DeBacker explained the workings of a player piano. Special thanks to 10th Mountain Distillery for providing a sampling of their brews. And lots of people learned they can play the piano (with their feet).

The Eagle County Historical Museum gained a couple of notable artifacts over the past year: a 1911 player piano from the Nottingham family and a whiskey still from a homestead in West Vail. Good time to have a party, right?
